CSSC Shipping secures $116.8m financing for ship acquisitions

CSSC Shipping, the financial leasing unit of China State Shipbuilding Corporation, has announced that the company has entered into an agreement with an unnamed bank to secure up to $116.8m loan facility.

The facility, which will be repaid in 10 years, will be used to finance the acquisition cost of four vessels.
